    I set up my D300, threw on a Nikon 200-400mm f/4, and used Nikon SB-800s as remote flashes to get this shot. And I also used self-timer, which made it pretty tough. I took like, six or seven shots, and this was the best one I could muster up. I had to shoot at 1/8000th of a second to get it, naturally. I wish I could have gone faster, but, couldn't...oh well.

    oohh, Ive been so tempted to do this. My camera only goes up to 1/2000 with the shutter so I have no chance of getting a clear image, or a clear shot out of my backyard lol. How many frames a second did you shoot at?? I think my video camera will do 1/8000 so at 30 fps, you'd think you would catch one frame with the ball squished against the face..Im going to set that up next time I go to the range during the day.

    I really like the lighting on that shot though, nice effort.

    I did one frame. My flashes don't recycle fast enough to do more than one frame. Haha. That's why this shot isn't fantastic...it's a one and done deal.
